It took me so long to find you! By mistake, I turned right at the market. A kind gentleman helped me to get to the office. He was also coming here, one floor above. So, my breast implants are way too happy. Every time a man touches me, my breasts start jumping happily. Please, doctor, do something about it. By the way, what kind of medical office is the one above us? Because the gentleman invited me over for a coffee and I would like to know what kind of problems he has. Psychological office "The Sad Penis"? You know what, you can leave my breasts like this. Perhaps I can heal that man.

Real Fiction is a collective project started in 2013 by Florin Piersic Jr. The concept of Real Fiction continued to exist as a Facebook group, after a volume of stories was published at Humanitas Publishing House. (In March 2021, the group has 4.300 members.) The authors write ultra-short stories, with the texts limited to 500 characters (in Romanian, so the length of the English translation might be a little different) - a flash-fiction exercise on a topic that changes every few days. The group's coordinators are Florin Piersic Jr., Gabriel Molnar, and Luchian Abel. (Drawing by Adrian T. Roman)
